What if a fascinating stranger knew you better than you know yourself?

When her husband comes home with a farfetched story about eating dinner with someone he believes to be Jesus, Mattie Cominsky thinks this may signal the end of her shaky marriage. Convinced that Nick is, at best, turning into a religious nut, the self-described agnostic hopes that a quick business trip will give her time to think things through.

On board the plane, Mattie strikes up a conversation with a fellow passenger. When she discovers their shared scorn for religion, she confides her frustration over her husband’s recent conversion. The stranger suggests that perhaps her husband isn’t seeking religion but true spiritual connection, an idea that prompts her to reflect on her own search for fulfillment.

As their conversation turns to issues of spiritual longing and deeper questions about the nature of God, Mattie finds herself increasingly drawn to this insightful stranger. But when the discussion unexpectedly turns personal, touching on things she’s never told anyone, Mattie is startled and disturbed. Who is this man who seems to peer straight into her soul?

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April Beltran | 2/7/2014

    " This book helped me understand God's true character and how our perception of Him is so marred by our own failings. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 dyana | 1/21/2014

    " Delightfully insightful! Picks up where "Dinner" leaves off. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 1/19/2014

    " I enjoyed this book and will probably read more by this author. The story makes you think about those around you and what would you take away from spending the day with Jesus. Wish we all could have that chance! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annette | 1/15/2014

    " it there was another star or two I would give it a 6 or 7. AMAZING! Even though I figured the people out after a few pages I LOVED every page. Now I have to read the Dinner one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trinity | 12/8/2013

    " I could read this again! It really is a great book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 11/22/2013

    " This is a great continuance of Dinner with a Perfect Stranger. I really enjoyed reading this one as well. Will recommend the pair to my daughter to read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet | 11/3/2013

    " I was excited to read the follow up ...and knew it was a 30 minute read outside on a beautiful spring day. Its good but not as good as the first one. I'm not sure if I would even recommend...He did have a beautiful illustration of how much God loves us.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susanne | 9/11/2013

    " Inspiring fiction with real food for thought. The book offers some good insight for sharing God with others. Definitely a book worth reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yolanda | 8/26/2013

    " This is the follow-up with Nick's wife Mattie. She is quite frustrated with her marriage and looking to God for answers was not on her list of ways to resolve it. It is not a big book but is a fast read and gives a person a few things to ponder. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doris | 8/2/2013

    " What if Jay were talking to you? Would you respond? What an intriguing question to begin 2009 with! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lydia | 7/17/2013

    " It's funny, I started with the sequel! It took me a very short time to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rowlak5 | 1/31/2013

    " Simple christian book about a troubled woman conversing with a stranger and being challenged to consider that God is what provides true fulfillment in life. The song "What if God was one of us...just a stranger on the bus" kept playing in my head as I read :-) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 10/21/2012

    " I liked this one a little better than the Dinner With a Perfect Stranger. In this one, Mattie, Nick's wife, meets a stranger in the seat next to her, on the plane. Neither have much use for "religion" per se; but there's something about this guy that is awfully compelling... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 9/9/2011

    " I guess I had too high of expectations after reading "Dinner with.." It was good but not as good as I had hoped! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Betsy | 1/8/2011

    " I actually enjoyed Day with a Stranger more than Dinner. Great story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 8/4/2010

    " This was a great book to read right after the bleak and depressing one I recently finished. I much prefer a book full of hope and promise, uplifting and enlightening, and this was it! It's all about God's love for us, and what could be better than that? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Melissa | 6/30/2010

    " So far that I'm not doing a good job as a mother, not really loving Bryan for him.... :( "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hillary | 1/22/2010

    " A real short read. Decent story but nothing spectacular. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teresa | 3/31/2009

    " Very nice read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 7/14/2008

    " Short follow-up to Dinner with a Perfect Stranger. This time, the book is about the wife of the guy in the first one and how she ends up meeting and spending a day with Jesus not realizing that it's him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberly | 7/3/2008

    " Very inspiring look into why it is important for us each to have a personal relationship with God! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wanda | 9/17/2007

    " I loved this book. It was an excellent short read that gave me much food for thought. I liked the way he pointed out the differences between religion and Christianity, as they are very different in my opinion. I loved the first book also. "
